Newham has the dirtiest constituents in the country, according to one of its own MPs.

Labour's Tony Banks, speaking yesterday during a Commons debate on waste disposal, said the people of Newham are 'a pretty filthy bunch who should clean up their act.'

Mr Banks informed the House, that when constituents ask him what the council is doing about the mess in the streets, 'I have to point out that the council officers do not creep around at midnight dumping litter on the streets.

'It is the people who live in the area who are responsible for the mess.'

He said the council has done its best by putting as many bins as possible around the area, but: 'miraculously, the bins seem to move up and down the street always managing to avoid the place where the litter is dropped.'
